After graduating cum laude at Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Economics, Ivanka Trump was employed for a short time at Forest City Realty Trust, which is a real estate investment company. In 2005 she started working for Donald Trump as Executive Vice President of Development & Acquisitions of the Trump Organization.
In 2007 Ivanka and Dynamic Diamond Corp. started working together on Ivanka’s personal line of jewelry. Her first store was opened on Madison Ave. in Manhattan, but it later moved to the Soho district. It was closed in 2015, but in 2016 she opened her next retail store in Trump Tower. Alongside the USA, she opened more stores in Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. In addition to jewelry, you can find clothes, shoes, and handbags in her stores.
Ivanka served as a spokesperson in Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016. During his campaign, Ivanka kept promoting her brand, and after she was finished with her speeches, links to things she wore were posted on her official Twitter account.
Ivanka went to work as a Senior Advisor when Donald Trump became president. She declared herself as an Independent in 2016. In 2017 she left her job at the Trump Organization, and in 2018 she said she is going to close all of her shops and turn to politics. No one knows for certain what is her exact position at the West Wing. Regarding her husband, Caitlin Flanagan wrote for The Atlantic, “Oddly, given her insistence on being a thoroughly modern woman, she wants greater power for her husband, who is Trump’s very opposite: personally disciplined, loath to speak in public, willowy, deeply committed to making his one marriage last.”
What is Ivanka doing now?
One month ago, in February Ivanka took a part of Assemblywoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal, concerning American jobs through an interview on The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton. “I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something,” she stated. “People want to work for what they get. So, I think this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want.”
